Point spread: Bengals -6.5 (Bengals favored to win by more than 6.5 points, otherwise Steelers cover)

Total scoring over/under: 44.5 points scored by both teams combined

FOX Bet’s Jason McIntyre: “Mike Tomlin as an underdog in a division game? Take my money. The Bengals will be the most overvalued team in the market next season. Yes, they have an elite QB/WR combo in Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase, but let’s also remember this team faced the third-easiest schedule in the NFL last season.

“The Bengals will now face the seventh-most difficult schedule when looking at the opponent’s season win totals. Bengals fans can earmuff the rest; everyone else, listen closely. Cincinnati held on to beat the Raiders when they failed inside the 10-yard line on fourth down. The Bengals beat the Titans on a walk-off field goal and then beat the Chiefs in overtime despite KC getting the ball first. If they don’t win all three of those games, Pittsburgh is probably closer to +3 or +3.5.

“This line is inflated. Give me the extra points.”

PICK: Steelers (+6.5 at FOX Bet) to lose by fewer than 6.5 points (or win outright)

McIntyre: “Expectations are sky-high for the Browns, but will DeShaun Watson be the starting quarterback? The league hasn’t rendered a verdict on a potential suspension. Baker Mayfield is on the roster right now, but that should change before Week 1. So currently, Jacoby Brissett is favored by more than a field goal on the road?

“Expectations are low for the Panthers and QB Sam Darnold. But with a healthy Christian McCaffrey and offseason improvements on the lines, I see the Panthers being competitive early as Matt Rhule fights to keep his job.

“The Panthers opened 3-0 behind a ferocious defense last season before everything fell apart. I like Carolina getting points early against a Browns team sans Watson in Week 1.”

PICK: Panthers (+4.5 at FOX Bet) to lose by fewer than 4.5 points (or win outright)

The Dallas Cowboys are the reigning NFC East champions, but Bleacher Report wrote that their offense will take a step back this season after losing Amari Cooper and Cedric Wilson Jr. They have tougher competition with the Philadelphia Eagles after trading for A.J. Brown. LaVar Arrington explains why the Cowboys are NOT the best team in the NFC East.

Indianapolis Colts @ Houston Texans (1 p.m. ET Sept. 11, CBS)

Point spread: Colts -8 (Colts favored to win by more than 8 points, otherwise Texans cover)
Moneyline: Colts -345 favorites to win (bet $10 to win $12.90 total); Texans +280 underdogs to win (bet $10 to win $38 total)
Total scoring over/under: 44 points scored by both teams combined

New York Giants @ Tennessee Titans (4:25 p.m. ET Sept. 11, FOX)

Point spread: Titans -6.5 (Titans favored to win by more than 6.5 points, otherwise Giants cover)
Moneyline: Titans -303 favorites to win (bet $10 to win $13.30 total); Giants +245 underdogs to win (bet $10 to win $34.50 total)
Total scoring over/under: 44 points scored by both teams combined

McIntyre: “I’m not a trend bettor, but one worth looking at in Week 1: Teams that didn’t make the playoffs last season against teams that did. Like it or not, the prior year’s playoff team tends to be overvalued in the market.

“When it comes to this matchup, the Titans were the No. 1 seed in the AFC last year. On the flip side, the Giants were one of the league’s biggest dumpster fires, and they fired their coach.

“I like New York’s new coach, Brian Daboll, and think he will be a tremendous value add to struggling QB Daniel Jones. The Giants will be undervalued with a full arsenal of healthy weapons — like Saquon Barkley and Kenny Golladay — in September.
